COSTA RICAN COMFORT

Costa Rica too rustic for you? The new Los Sueños Resort smoothes the way for pampered travelers to set pedicured foot in the Central American paradise. A Ted Robinson Jr.- designed golf course, a 250-slip marina, residential villas, and a 200-room colonial-style Marriott Hotel share the property with more than 1,000 acres of rainforest. (Beware of the local monkeys who like to snatch balls from the fairways.) Ninety minutes from San Jose, the Pacific resort keeps patrons put with jungle hikes, sailfish charters, spa services, a casino, and the country’s second largest pool. Hotel rooms start at $129; condos rent for two-week-or-more stays. 011-506-630-9000, www.lossuenosresort.com
